Sergeant Linden (Beau) Raimer was killed when a rotted pine tree hit his patrol car.

Sergeant Raimer and passenger were in the funeral procession for Deputy Sheriff Hilery A. Mayo Jr., when the accident happened. The procession was moving through Covington when a violent thunderstorm knocked down numerous trees from Slidell to Covington. A large pine tree hit his patrol car on 21st Avenue, crushing the top of the vehicle and killing Sergeant Raimer instantly. The deputy riding with him, who was also his fiance, was taken to St. Tammany Parish Hospital, paralyzed from the chest down.

I think of you from time to time even all these years later. I'm sure you know that, though. I can still see your smile, remember your voice, the sound of your laugh, your mannerisms. Can't say I was surprised you didn't get old like the rest of us. You called it. You told me many times you knew you would never be old. I think the gift in you knowing that is how much you lived each day. Oh all the irony in so many of our conversations! I'm only sorry you were right. That's one thing you could've been wrong about, you know. I did tell you not to say that. Bad juju! For the record, I told you so! Haha!

You were a great friend to so many, me included. You definitely made work fun. You kept us on our toes. No telling where you'd end up, especially during night shift. For all the laughs....and the many times you ran out the door giggling after getting us to throw stuff at you.... Thanks.

I'm honored to have dispatched for you. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to know you. I'm particularly honored to call you "friend".

You're never forgotten. So many keep you near. You'll be going on for a looooong time in our hearts and memories.

I'll never forget.
